Hey, I need all the help I can get...if it weren't for Arb, GOP, and CLIFF, we fans of 68 would really be in trouble.

Thanks.

I wish I could discuss songs/ears or pull stats and facts out of my ass like you guys tho...

Im more a Short and sweet "your a fuckin idiot if you dont get it" type

I could never hang in a serious conversation here other than by throwing in tidbits gleaned from other sources

Not to say I dont have those thoughts.. I just express myself better with a hammer than a KB

That's totally cool; I only know 68 because, well, because that is the only time period I really focus on. Others, like GOP or CLIFF, know 65 thru 77 like the back of their hand, and still others know a great deal about the entire time period.

Since I focus on a short time, 68-70, it really is easier. I grew up with the boys in northern CA, and went to shows from 74 to 82, but somehow migrated 'back' to an earlier era for my focus the past five yrs, and especially since arriving here with the likes of McGlone, Ashes and Arbuthnot to provide me with the 'archive' (I now have all I need), and the likes of CLIFF and GOP to provide me with all the addt'l info to make sure I wasn't missing anything...this place has been a Godsend, for sure.

Now, I can sit around and discuss 'it,' and send 'it' to folks, and appear to be informed about 'it,' but everything I am doing is begged, borrowed or...well, okay, I never actually stole it, but it felt like it.

Sorry, didn't mean to bore you with my history.

So, if you've made it this far, and you don't mind me asking--how do you like it over here? [Hope it's okay to talk about that hereabouts...]

Im kinda familiar with it..

I actually had login here before I did there (not this one)

I had been pulling shows for a couple of months from here and GDLive before I ran into DH

but that was all before they split the GD board off ..spring 2004ish

I really stopped coming here when I got my first BT client
I already had a HUGE backlog of shows from months of downloading and I concentrated my torrenting on other bands for awhile..
not to mention BT.etree which pretty much took care of my GD needs

when the board split off .. or therabouts..
I made this login since I was already using it at all the torrent sites and boards I was into
I dont ever recall posting with it until lately
